    This book was decent but not on par with the amount of hype / marketing campaign surrounding it. Told from two points of view, Grossman begins the book in a very satirical tone aimed at the commonalities between all superhero adventures. The first chapter is spectacular drawing you in and promising a different superhero story. However, Grossman disappoints with his second POV character which while certainly interesting, comes across more like a stranger in another world than someone intimately familiar enough with the superhero scene to narrate satirically. That being said the two POVs give off very different tones and it hurts the book overall.

    If Grossman were to write the story all from the first POV of view it would probably be a must read. I would still read it but wait for the paperback version.
